Welcome Emma's Planet!

I just wanted to introduce a fab new seller to Folksy - Emma's Planet!

She makes really funky monsters and gorgeous button jewellery which are a must for anyone with a button obsession - like me!

She's just getting started, but I'm certain it won't be long before the monster's will be finding fantastic new homes to live in. Here's a couple of her little helpers below, but head on over to her shop to see them all!

Time for a catch-up!

It has been weeks since I last managed a blog post so here I am ready to try and give you a bit of a catch up with what I've been up to! One very positive reason for my lack of time to update on here has been the amazing sales I have been getting on my new store. The orders have been rolling in and I have been trotting off the the post box regularly to keep up to date with them. It is reassuring to be getting such a steady flow of orders and I am pleased I decided to take the plunge and join the site. I have also been working on new designs and now have a few 'exclusive to the site' items and also my first range of wedding stationery.

Folksy has been ticking over too but I am unfortunately not getting enough time on there to keep an eye on the forums and see what everyone else is up to!

I have visited my first supplier to see my recent order from them in situ'. So exciting to see them alongside the other designs. I have also now produced a trade brochure to send out to interested suppliers - I have had some interest, so hopefully there will be more news to follow soon! :)

I've also managed a week away on the sunny south coast in Devon - sleeping under canvas and paddling in the sea, it doesn't get much better!!

It would seem however, from the recent weather, that summer is over ... so time to start thinking about CHRISTMAS - new items in my shops coming soon, I may well be busy for a couple more weeks!

Back soon ....
